Sedation Dentistry – A New Way to Experience the Dentist’s Office
Do you hate going to the dentist? One out of four Americans feel stressed or anxious in the typical dental environment. Some of us have dental anxiety, memories of stressful dental experiences, a strong gag reflex, sensitive teeth, or a dental phobia. Sometimes, a sore neck or back problems make sitting in a dentist chair profoundly uncomfortable. And during lengthy dental procedures, even the most tolerant among us start squirming after an hour or two in a dentist chair.
If you have any of these conditions, sedation dentistry is for you. Boulder sedation dentist Dr. Gordon West has a sedation dentistry program helps patients to relax, receive the best treatment, and enjoy a more pain-free recovery. Many people with dental anxiety or phobias put off going to the dentist for years, which can lead to severe dental problems such as major tooth decay, tooth loss, infections, root canals, chronic bad breath, and gum disease. As a sedation dentist in Lafayette CO, Dr. West brings patients into a comfortable, relaxing environment. Using a combination of music, acupressure and medication, he has helped even the most anxious patients achieve a healthy smile.
